Welcome to the CHEK Academy

The CHEK Academy offers an elite health and performance curriculum unlike anything you’ve seen before – designed to tackle the toughest rehabilitation challenges, smash through athletic performance plateaus and create life changing health and vitality.

1. Cutting-Edge Working Knowledge

Learn Paul Chek’s cutting-edge holistic approach to health and performance.

The CHEK Academy is the only institution in the world where you can receive an integrated education in nutrition, anatomy, exercise, stress reduction, coaching, and personal success.

2. Maximise your Contribution

You have a deep interest in helping people. But what’s the best way to do that? There are so many educational options out there, most students have no idea what path is best for them.

They hop from workshop to workshop trying to discover where they belong, never truly actualizing their potential or building the career they want for themselves. That stops here.

At the CHEK Academy you will learn to align and focus your skills, experience, motivation and passion for health toward your personal mission – all in an effort to maximize your contribution

3. Join a Community

Join a community of mission-focused individuals who share the common dream you and I have – to restore health and vitality to the world and those who live in it.

You will also be a part of a mentoring group with an experienced CHEK Professional who has already walked this path. They have made the mistakes, found the best practices, and have acquired invaluable wisdom.

Your mentoring group will support you through your courses, guide you while you’re building your own practice, and answer all the questions that will arise throughout your journey.

4. Business Mastery

Getting a solid technical education is only half the battle toward your dream.

You are responsible for your own business – you need to learn to grow and sustain an independent career as a health professional.

We will teach you how to redefine your business, integrate the CHEK system into your current practice, and continue to grow your unique business model.

My name is Paul Chek

I am an Athlete, Holistic Health Practitioner, Medicine Man, Neuromuscular Therapist, Clinical Exercise Specialist and Founder of the CHEK Institute in California. My mission is to educate health professionals to treat the body-mind as a whole system.

Prior to opening up the CHEK Institute I worked in a small clinic where people knew me as the “last resort.”

I earned this reputation because my practice was made up mostly of clients that were regarded as problem cases by other health professionals (doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, etc.) who could not help their patients.

What I was offering wasn’t something supernatural. I simply had the perspective, knowledge and the tools to address their clients’ issues from angles that university-trained experts weren’t aware of.

How did I gain that perspective, knowledge and tools?

I busted my ass to learn what I know now. I flew around the world for high-ticket workshops. I worked without pay for masters in their respective fields, and I tracked down rare books to read.

Then, I worked tirelessly on piecing everything together so they could work practically in a viable system.

Ultimately, I recognized that I am only one person and didn’t have the bandwidth to heal everyone. If I was going to make a big change in the way we approached health and performance I needed to start teaching other people what I had learned – that’s when I decided to open the doors of The CHEK Institute. It was 1996.

How much does it cost?

I’ve never been a fan of traditional education. From my experience, universities rarely understand their students’ learning styles and often indoctrinate their students into rigid and limited perspectives about what it means to be healthy.

Earning a degree in Nutrition can cost you $20,000-$65,000
Earning a degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science can cost up to $153,000
Earning a degree in Psychology can cost up to $60,000 per year!


The CHEK Academy offers you an elite education that has proven to be highly effective at cultivating incredible health and wellbeing, rehabilitating “medical failures” and coaching athletes to achieve their highest levels of performance – for less than $4500/year.

Your investment can be as low as $372/month

Q: I have no prior education or experience as a health professional, am I still eligible to enroll in the CHEK Academy?
A: Yes! We welcome all people who are interested in starting or furthering their career as a Health Professional.

Q: I am already a CHEK Practitioner Level 1 and HLC Level 1 and have purchased many of the pre-requisite courses for other levels. Do I need to re-take these courses and pay again?
A: No. In fact your Academy fees will be recalculated to remove the cost of those programs you’ve already completed! However you must hold current CHEK Status. Your current CHEK qualification will determine at which year you will enter the Academy.

A: No, but they do cover all course materials. You will, however, be given a list of recommended accommodations and places to eat close to the venue.

Q: Do I pay extra to become part of the Academy?
A: No, the whole point of the Academy is that all the correspondence courses and live advanced training programs are heavily discounted off the regular price.

Q: Is there an upfront fee I need to pay to join?
A: No, all payments are calculated and spread over the period for which you are joining; normally, 3 years for the CHEK Academy and 2 years for the advanced CHEK Academy.

Q: Can I complete all my training in the first few months and pay it off over a year?
A: No, the payment process is not a buy-now-pay-later program. You must always be in front of payments before attending courses.

Q: I already hold other medical non CHEK Institute qualifications. Can I join the Academy at a higher year?
A: No. Regardless of current non-CHEK qualifications, all students must complete each year, starting with the first, before progressing to the next.

Q: I have friends who are interested in joining the academy. Is there a discount if more than one person applies for the Academy?
A: No. All applicants are assessed individually before being accepted into the Academy. There are no further discounts available.

Q: How does mentoring work?
Academy mentoring sessions are 90-minute, monthly online meetings conducted by an experienced CHEK Faculty member or CHEK Professional. They are designed to to help you apply specific Academy lessons in your practice and to answer your questions about what you’ve learned.

Q: If I get accepted into the Academy, but find I cannot attend one of the workshop weekends, do I get a refund for that workshop?
A: No. You will be required to attend the workshop at a later date.

Q: What if I join the Academy and cannot attend a Live Advanced Training Program?
A: You must accept all course dates for the next 12 months before October 1st each year. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to attend one of these whilst in the Academy you may transfer to a later course, but only up to 90 days before the course start date. This transfer will be free of charge ONCE ONLY in your entire time within the CHEK Academy! If you need to transfer more than once, you will be required to pay a transfer fee. If you cancel with less than 90 days of attending the course, you will not be able to transfer and will be required to pay for the course again.

Q: Can I pay up front for all years of the Academy and get a further discount?
A: No, payment in advance is accepted but no further discounts apply.

A: No, all applicants for Team CHEK or CHEK Faculty must formally apply directly to the CHEK Institute.

Q: What if, for some reason, I need to leave the Academy midterm?
A: You will pay a termination fee which will cover all the training you have received up to that point and that you are due to complete in the next 90 days, with no Academy discounts. The maximum you will be required to pay as a termination fee is the difference between attending the courses with the Academy and completing the courses separately without discounts.

Q: What if I cannot afford to pay 1 month’s fee for the Academy. Can I pay double next month?
A: No, your academy training will be put on hold. If this continues, you will be sent a termination invoice and will be dismissed from the Academy.

Q: Can I choose the location of the workshops and courses I wish to attend?
A: Yes, if there is availability on that course. Otherwise, you will be required to attend a workshop or live course where available.

Q: Must I complete Steps 1 and 2 of the application process to be eligible for the scholarship?
A: Yes. For your scholarship application to be eligible, you must complete both steps, not just one. If only Step 1 is completed, your application will not be taken into consideration. You can complete Step 2 by following this link: https://chekinstitute.com/academy/step2/
